9780099593539: Death of a Ghost

Agatha Christie called her 'a shining light'. Have you discovered Margery Allingham, the 'true queen' of the classic murder mystery?
     The late John Lafcadio's ambition to be known as the greatest painter since Rembrandt was not to be curbed by a matter as inconvenient and trifling as his own death: bequeathing twelve sealed paintings to his family, his will proclaimed that the canvasses be unveiled over the years at annual exhibitions populated by the elite of the art world.
     But his quest for artistic immortality is interrupted when, during the eighth unveiling ceremony, the beau of Lafcadio's grand-daughter is stabbed to death. Albert Campion is among those present, and must untangle one of his most bizarre cases to date.

About the Author:

MARGERY ALLINGHAM was born in London in 1904. She sold her first story at age 8 and published her first novel before turning 20. She married the artist, journalist and editor Philip Youngman Carter in 1927. In 1928 Allingham published her first detective story, The White Cottage Mystery, and the following year, in The Crime at Black Dudley, she introduced the detective who was to become the hallmark of her sophisticated crime novels and murder mysteries -- Albert Campion. Famous for her London thrillers, such as Hide My Eyes and The Tiger in the Smoke, Margery Allingham has been compared to Dickens in her evocation of the city's shady underworld. Acclaimed by crime novelists such as P.D. James, Allingham is counted alongside Dorothy L. Sayers, Agatha Christie and Gladys Mitchell as a pre-eminent Golden Age crime writer. Margery Allingham died in 1966.

Review:

   · "Miss Allingham is one of the few writers who can deal with art. Both her passions and her patterns are beautiful, accurate and serene." --Daily Telegraph 

   · "Don't start reading these books unless you are confident that you can handle addiction." --Independent 

   · "Allingham captures her quintessential quiet detective Albert Campion to perfection... For those who relish classic crime fiction." --Daily Express
